While the health crisis has exploded the use of video conferencing services and collaborative communication platforms, Dell adapts to new customer requirements. In fact, next month the manufacturer will be releasing a new line of monitors specifically designed for video calling that include a Microsoft Teams button.

So last year Video conferencing services posted record highs. Zoom in particular has developed from relative anonymity to one of the most important platforms for the health crisis. Another telling example is that of Logitech, which saw a surge in deals thanks in particular to the surge in webcam sales.
Collaborative work platforms also had their share of the cake. With teleworking mandatory for millions of people around the world, Slack broke records and Microsoft Teams exceeded 115 million users a day. A phenomenon that creates important new opportunitieswho have not escaped Dell’s watchful eyes.
